NOTE: The aircraft maintenance division is responsible for organizational-level maintenance of assigned and transient aircraft. The organization of this division is similar to that of a squadron, which is discussed later in this chapter. SUPPLY DEPARTMENT The supply department is headed by the senior supply corps officer. The department is responsible for the logistic support of the naval air station and all activities on the station. The supply officer and assistants have the responsibility for issuing all fuel and oils. Responsibilities extend to issuing aircraft parts and support equipment. The supply department also operates the general mess. PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT The public works department is headed by a civil engineer corps officer. The officer in this position is responsible for the minor construction, maintenance, and operation of all public works and utilities. This department consists of utilities, maintenance, transportation, engineering, maintenance control, and administrative divisions. The department is staffed by both naval and civilian personnel. WEAPONS DEPARTMENT The weapons department is headed by a weapons officer. The department is responsible for the care, handling, stowage, accountability, and issuance of aviation ordnance, ammunition, and pyrotechnics. The department is also responsible for the maintenance of magazines, armories, and the equipment associated with ordnance. DENTAL DEPARTMENT The dental department is responsible for the oral health of all station military personnel. The senior dental officer performs dental examinations and does other dental work. He/she is assisted by dental officers and dental technicians. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT The medical officer is responsible for all health-related problems on the base. This includes prevention and control of disease and treatment of the sick or injured. The medical officer is informed of all matters regarding hygiene, sanitation, and epidemics. The medical officer also advises the commanding officer in matters affecting the health and physical fitness of personnel. A flight surgeon, under the direction of the medical officer, takes care of all aviation medicine. The medical department is also responsible for the medical care of dependents of military personnel. AIRCRAFT INTERMEDIATE MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT (AIMD) The primary function of the aircraft intermediate maintenance department (AIMD) is to perform intermediate-level maintenance. It supports station aircraft, tenant squadrons, and special units. NOTE:  Naval aircraft maintenance is divided into three levels—organizational, intermediate, and depot. Organizational maintenance   is work performed by operating units, such as a squadron, on a day-to-day basis. This work consists of inspecting, servicing, lubricating, adjusting, and replacing parts, minor assemblies, and subassemblies. Intermediate maintenance   is work performed at centrally located facilities, such as an AIMD, in support of operating units. This work consists of calibration, repair, or replacement  of  damaged  or  unserviceable  parts, components, or assemblies; limited manufacture of parts; and technical assistance.  Depot maintenance  is performed at large industrial-type facilities, such as a Naval Aviation Depot (NADEP), and includes major overhaul and major repair or modifications of aircraft, components, and equipment, and the manufacture of parts. The aircraft intermediate maintenance department is broken down into divisions, as shown in figure 2-3. A brief description of each is provided in the following paragraphs. Quality Assurance/Analysis (QA/A) QA/A is staffed with a relatively small group of highly skilled personnel. These permanently assigned personnel are responsible for conducting and managing the QA/A programs of the department. The maintenance personnel assigned to QA/A are known as quality assurance representatives (QARs). A data analyst is assigned to QA/A. His/her purpose is to get more efficient use of the information collected by the aviation maintenance data system (MDS). The primary duty of the data analyst is to perform all MDS functions of QA/A. The QA/A division also maintains the technical library. 2-4
